Prelude Miniature Wire Haired Dachshunds-

History and Introduction

Thom and I started into Miniature Wire Haired Dachshunds 1994 with "Willy" a handsome red dog from Emma Jean Stephenson's well known "EJ" kennel in Pittsburgh Pa. He was to become the first of many American and Canadian Champions here at Prelude.

We also acquired a little red girl named Peanut who turned out to be a great friend and is behind almost everyone of our puppies. Her calm sweet demeanour endeared me to the breed as up to this point I was not used to a "hound" temperament.

Peanut was also an incredible producer and loved her puppies. Her first litter of 6 was followed by her next of 7 and her final litter of 8!

Retired Dogs looking for loving homes.

There are rare occasions where an adult dog is available. Sometimes we will even allow one of our dogs to go to a forever family with the stipulation that they come back for another litter in the future before they are spayed or neutered. Talk to David or Thom if that would be of interest to you.
